post-race

monday

Sore after yesterday’s half, decided to rest up today.  Still feeling good about the race and result.  Was mildly disappointed when the clock ticked above 1:17 as I approached the finish line as the pace felt faster – doesn’t it always? – especially in the middle miles.  Had to remind self this was the longest race since May’s marathon and had had to moderate the distance since then due to the injuries, increasing the mileage to double digits only the past couple of weeks.  Felt this lack of mileage in the final 3 miles, as the eventual winner caught up with me.  Didn’t have the usual reserve fuel for the final miles and even had moments when I thought I might bonk, but hung on and finished okay.  Have 3 weeks til the Niagara Falls Half and that should give me enough time to prepare with some more long runs.
